We are a non-profit health organization whose mission is to creatively provide preventive health services to all segments of the Nigerian populace using practical, innovative and novel approaches. Our vision is to see all Nigerians – irrespective of their age, sex, marital status, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, religion or tribe live a healthy, fulfilling and productive life. We aim to contribute significantly to the reduction of our nation’s mortality rate and the improvement of the rapidly worsening overall health-related quality of life.
This is primarily targeted towards the entire population with special attention on healthy individuals with the sole aim of preventing disease. We aim to use conventional means and the new media to achieving this end leveraging on existing platforms.
Health screening is strategically designed to detect NCDs at their incipient stages in otherwise healthy population especially those with increased risks while also looking out for other risk factors that may worsen implicated disease conditions
We are committed to contributing to the body of knowledge that currently exists on the peculiarities of our nation’s healthcare especially, but not limited to lifestyles, NCDs, sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), screenings and health policies.
